Makeover Monday

Well, here is my first attempt at Makeover Monday! I really hope I can keep up with at least this (totally slacking in the blog department lately). I wish I had a really cool button to put up for Makeover Monday, but I don't know how to create one or put it on my blog. Any advice in that department is welcome :)

For my first makeover, we'll talk about me! I recently chopped my hair off and got high and low lights put in. I really like it so far and was really needing a change for quite some time but wasn't sure what I wanted to do. So as any girl would do, I booked an appointment the day before Christmas Eve just in time for the holidays and hoped for the best! If it sucked, it would be documented in all of the Christmas photos for the year - yippee! 

Here are some pics from before:

The Inspiration I found online

And after:
After about 2 and a half hours at the salon
I don't think my cut really looks like my inspiration photo. The lady didn't style my hair like the picture or how I would style it at all and I opted to not cut my bangs. Bangs look amazing on some people, I'm just really scared to try them. It's been about 15 years since I've had them and I'm scared to go back. The end result, I LOVE it! My husband is still adjusting. He liked my hair long, but I like how much time I save in the morning when getting ready. I never did anything fun with my hair - I only wore it in a pony tail or flat ironed. I didn't have the patience or talent to curl it. I kind of felt like a hypocrite having the long hair but not doing anything to it. 

Stay tune for next week's post where we'll move things into our house and look at the many changes we've done over the past (almost) 2 years of living here. I LOVE change and the hubs is starting to like it to :)

Happy Monday!
